Join us for a fun and in-depth show Wed night 8-10PM CDT
This week, we'll go back to 2011 for an interview with one of the better reports from an embed this decade. For those who listened to All Things Considered on NPR in 2011, you caught an outstanding series on the 3rd Battalion 5th Marines – the Darkhorse Battalion — the Marine unit that suffered the highest casualty rate of any Marine unit during the 10-year Afghan war.
Our guest for the full hour is the journalist who brought the American people that story - Tom Bowman, NPR National Desk reporter covering the Pentagon.
In his current role, Bowman has traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan often for month-long visits and embedded with U.S. Marines and soldiers.
Before coming to NPR in April 2006, Bowman spent nine years as a Pentagon reporter at The Baltimore Sun. Altogether he was at The Sun for nearly two decades, covering the Maryland Statehouse, the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Naval Academy, and the National Security Agency (NSA).
On this edition of the COIL, our guest is once again the talented Andrea Seabrook, the driving force behind the syndicated show DecodeDC and former Congressional correspondent for NPR and host of the weekend edition of All Things Considered.
This week we’re delving into the issue of crowdfunding – why it’s become so important, some of the controversial issues around its adoption and how it’s spawning a wave of innovative projects, including Andrea’s own DecodeDC. We’re also taking a look at what it means to be a trailblazer in alternative-funded media and how hybrid crowdfunded/sponsored content can actually work. In a bit of psuedo-investigative journalism, we delve into the world of Mexican soap operas, as Andrea shares a bit of her own illustrious history and how she came to land a role in the prime time telenovela, Demasiado Corazon.

Tonight at 8pm ET on Ernest Radio Network, it's Political Gravity.
The Golden Dawn, a neo-Nazi party, won 18 seats in the Greek Hellenic Parliament in 2012. Less than a week ago, two of the members of that party were killed on the street. The party started gaining momentum with a a leader named Michaloliakos, but then he withdrewn his support. They have been gaining ground since Greek's economy crashed.
Is Greece, who invented citizen driven government, considered civilized enough to support a Neo-Nazi party, or is it a shameful reality? Also, Unicef is now distributing polio immunizations in Syria & surrounding countries since a recent outbreak. All this plus NPR news, weather.com 3-day forecast, music, and more. 1.347.989.1942 - phones will be open.
Tonight at 6pm on Ernest Radio Network, it's Saturday Edition.
The fat man himself, Jay Ril, is doing something (probably eating at a buffet, or shopping for a new size 6X leather jacket) and will not be on the show, but Ernest is still joined by Mr. LES, Momo B, and the crew to ask the question...what is your dream:
Job Date Vacation Hmmm, lots to think about there. Join us for NPR news, weather.com 3-day forecast, and new music by Toni Braxton featuring Babyface, and Leela James featuring Anthony Hamilton!
Tonight at 8pm ET on Ernest Radio Network, it's The Ernest Experience Radio Show.
Tonight, it's a little bit different. Ernest talks about why it's "been a hell of a day". Also, the Listening Lounge is in the 2nd set, and a special NPR episode about the Wilhelm Scream is in the 3rd set. What the heck is the Wilhelm Scream? You might not recognize the name, but you know the scream. It's a fun story.
All this plus NPR news, weather.com 3-day forecast, spooktacular music, and new music by Leela James at the end of the show.
STEALING NATIVE AMERICAN CHILDREN What we rarely do, is pay the remotest attention to what is STILL happening in the daily lives of the First Nations peoples. Do we look at the abject poverty that has been inflicted on the most at-risk group in our greater society? Are we remotely aware that this poverty is being used as an excuse to steal yet another generation of children?
From Boarding Schools, to Adoptions, the cultural genocide is happening right now; fed by a seemingly endless flow of Federal monies that rewards the States for taking Indian children from their families.
Tonight, I am joined by three amazing women who will tell their tales.
Evelyn Red Lodge is an author and journalist who advocates for the ICWA. Her story is chronicled in "Two Worlds: Lost Children of the Indian Adoption Projects."
Janice Howe fought (and finally won) for the return of her 4 stolen grandchildren s chronicled on NPR.
Molly KillsEnemy is a dear friend who was both adopted away herself as a young girl, and had a son taken from her outside the ICWA when she was young. She now lives with her two sons and one daughter, with another daughter who has married.
Please listen to my honored guests speak of their experiences and stand strong against the vile Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare & Lisa Morris who are trying to end the Indian Child Welfare Act - an act that needs to be strengthened, not revoked.
Tonighit at 8pm ET on Ernest Radio Network, it's Beaten Path.
We all have been in the space to search for love, but what do we do in the meantime? Is the search worth it, or should you fulfill your intermediate needs with sexual liaisons? Moreover, does a person need sex to get through life at all? Some say that sex is one of the ultimate stress relievers, but are people who don't have sex more stressed out? Or is the stress from the search for love itself?
All this plus NPR news, and music from Amel Larrieux, & Mindy Smith (with Dolly Parton!). Join us!
I HAD TO SAY THAT. I BELIEVE WHEN THE LAST AMERICAN WWII VET GOES TO VALHALLA THE COMMUNISTS WILL REWRITE HISTORY. WHY NOT THEY CONTROL ONE POLITICAL PARTY AND HAVE RESERVISTS IN THE OTHER. THEY CONTROL MANY JUDGES PLUS THE SUPREME COURT. THEY CONTROL MOST UNIVERSITIES INCLUDING THE CATHOLIC ONES. THEY CONTROL ALL THE MEDIA EXCEPT FOX NEWS. THAT INCLUDES COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT OWNED NPR. AL JAZERO IS AN ALLY. THEY CONTROL ALL ASSETS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND CAN BORROW AGAINST YOUR 401K. THIS GOVERNMENT UNDER STALIN RUINED 50% OF YOUR INVESTMENT IN REAL ESTATE AND STOCKS. NOT TO MENTION ROBBING SOCIAL SECURITY, GM, CHRYSLER AND ALMOST GOT FORD. THEY LOAN MONEY TO BANKS AT 0% INTEREST. THE BANKS LOAN IT BACK AT 2% INTEREST.
Tonight at 6pm ET on Ernest Radio Network, it's Saturday Edition.
